Servings 6


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 16 oz can refried beans
  • 1 10 oz can mild enchilada sauce
  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 c shredded cheddar cheese (1 - 8 oz bag)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a saucepan, brown the ground beef. Remove from the heat and drain any excess fat.
  • Add the refried beans to the beef and stir well; set aside.
  • Grease a pie plate or a 8 or 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.
  • Open the can of enchilada sauce and add 2 tablespoons of the sauce to the bottom of the pan.
  • Next, layer with a tortilla, 1/2 c beef/bean mixture and 1/4 c cheese. Repeat until you've used all the tortillas. (I find it easiest to spread the beef/bean mixture on before laying the tortilla down). Finish the stack with the last tortilla.
  • Pour the remaining enchilada sauce into the beef/bean mixture and stir until combined.
  • Pour the sauce over the enchilada stack, making sure to cover the edges of the tortillas.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is melted.
  • Let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Serve with salsa, avocados, sour cream, cilantro and jalapenos, if desired.
